The Phuket News understands that the reticulated python – in Thai, "ngoo leau-am" – was a show snake and did not have any poisnonous venom, and the woman was released shortly after recieving stitches. 

The clip and a selfie showing the woman's bite mark have since circulated rapidly on social media.

While I feel bad for the poor Chinese lady, I gotta score one for the snake.  But the biggest a-hole by far is the Thai mental giant that obviously doesn't have enough knowledge of handling this animal, nor does he have any common sense to see the potential for a bad event.  Actually, they're all freekin idiots (except the snake).
